of sanctions that has crippled iran's economy, cut their oil revenues by more than half, have put enormous pressure on currency, their economy contracted by more than 5% last year, and it is precisely because of the international sanctions and coalition we were able to build internationally that the iranian people responded by saying we need a new direction in how we interact with the international community and how we deal with the sanctions regime, and that's what brought president rowhani to power. he was not necessarily the first choice of hard liners inside iran. now, that doesn't mean that we should trust him or anybody else inside iran. this is a regime that came to power as swearing opposition to the united states, to israel, and to many of the values that we hold dear, but what i've consistently said is even as i don't take any options off the table, what we do have to test is the possibility that we can resolve this issue diplomatically, and that is the deal that at the first stages we have been able to get done in geneva, thanks to some extraordinary work by john kerry and his c

what does that say about our economy? >> well, first of all, the data we get on -- from the retailers at this time of year is almost always contradictory and confusing. they are not always completely forthcoming because they don't want to discourage people from shopping. i think the most interesting thing we saw over the weekend, besides the fact that a number of retailers decided to be open on thanksgiving day, was that 40% of the sales were on-line. in a sense, cyber monday is an accra nism. cyber monday dates from the day when people had slow internet at home and came to work on monday after thanksgiving and ordered. now so many have broadband people are shopping on-line all the time and the retailers are scrambling to catch up with consumers. >> i shop on-line too in light of the incidents you see every black friday, always seems to be a fight somewhere and that can't help retailers, right? >> right. well, of course not. but i think people like going to the stores. we at the "wall street journal" and others did stories following teenagers around the mall and that's social. you can

know the economy is essential, and it's good he was meeting with secretary geithner, but here on his signature issue not to take charge. and i have no doubt the white house is right, that secretary sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care, but the whole point is, there was nobody in charge in the administration. the president was turning to and saying i look to you for overall responsibility, and in this case it should have been the secretary of health and human services. she does run the department that oversees this. and the fact that he was not meeting with her one-on-one, i think, frankly, is not so much an indictment of her but of the white house operation. >> which is fascinating because we saw her testify very publicly, she took full responsibility for what had happened, but at the same time if this was so important to the president, you would think that there was a lot more one-on-one interaction especially on something that's so critical to him and his policy. professor, the president went on msnbc this week, he was asked about his manageme
